The Federal Procurement Data System Next Generation (FPDS-NG) is the U.S. Government's primary repository of transaction data for agency contracts subject to the reporting criteria specified by the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). It is also a key resource for many free and fee-based third-party aggregators of government contracting data.
Why Should You Attend?
In addition to providing you practical ways of understanding how to find and use the information contained in FPDS-NG, this workshop will also help you become more efficient at using the information you get from fee-based data sources that present information extracted from FPDS-NG.
Information To Win™: FPDS-NG helps participants understand what data exists in FPDS-NG and how it can be used to positively impact marketing, business development and capture activities. When used as a driver for opportunity and relationship development, the information presented will prepare attendees to access, collect and exploit FPDS-NG information to improve their organization’s situational awareness of current and prospective customers, competitors, partners and opportunities.
Information To Win™:
introduces participants to designing and executing queries using the very, very
customizable Ad Hoc Reports tool, the
only way to search for and export exactly the data you need from FPDS-NG. While
ezSearch gives access to over 109 searchable attributes online and 21 attributes
in the exported report, the AdHoc tool offers more than 300 searchable attributes
online. (NOTE: To date, none of the reports we have run have hit a maximum
number of allowable fields in an exported report. But we are still trying!)
Attendees will participate in exercises to familiarize them
with the capabilities of the AdHoc
Reports tool, exporting and manipulating exported data to provide answers
to marketing, business development and capture-related questions.
